Although the book was an excellent book about the Worlds Fair. Title and blurb about the book was a little missleading. The book was more about the worlds fair than about the "devil". I expected details concerning H.H. Holmes. Instead I was given amazing insight into the construction and the logistics of designing and building the 1892 worlds fair. This book would have been better if it had been title The White City and dropped the devil part.
I loved the story, but as others have noted the "person A said", "they said", "person B said", "he said", "she said", etc. Got so annoying I almost had to take a break from listening.
This would have been the kind of book, I listen to multiple times were it not for the non-stop use of "----- said". It is really a shame that something like this gets in the way of a good story.
This is a book I will recommend with the warning that the dialog may get on your nerves.
